Guide – Ethnic Histories

German Evangelical Nursing Home

I uploaded a new chapter to the Genealogical Guide on Ethnic Histories or more exactly a list of links to find those histories. A few older ones have been digitized but for the most part you will have to find the books in a library near you.

Germans are well represented and Kathleen Urbanic’s book on the the Ukrainian community well details those immigrants. There is a chapter in one book on the Irish that came to the Rochester area but why isn’t there a full book on the Irish immigrants to Monroe County?

Originally I thought that I would have the Genealogical Guide completed by the first of the year but I fell way behind. I’ll try to finish as soon as possible. Meanwhile check out chapters that are completed on the Genealogical Guide web page.

  1. Hi Dick,
    Thank you for this post, and for all the things you’ve posted since my last message.
    The history of Rochester is a wonderful mix of many different nationalities and ethnic groups, and it’s fun to learn about and celebrate all of them. My Irish ancestors came to Rochester in the early 1800’s, and I have not been able to find much of anything from that time period. If I find anything, I’ll let you know.
